Sheffield United's promotion ambitions were dealt a blow on Friday evening when they lost to the only goal of the game at Hull City, however the Blades remain in touch with the play-off places in the Championship with just two points separating them from sixth-placed Bristol City as things stand. Chris Wilder's men had won their previous two league outings although with their last two away games ending in defeat, we're far from confident that they will bounce back when they head to Reading on Tuesday evening.

The Royals are far removed from the side which managed to reach the play-off final last season. Jaap Stam's men currently sit just four points above the bottom three in the Championship table and with just a single league win since early December, they desperately need to stop the rot before they become embroiled in a relegation battle.

Nevertheless Reading can consider themselves lucky to have collected a point in their six-goal thriller at home to Derby County last time out with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson banging in the equaliser for the home side in the 80th minute. This was a decent result against a Rams side which remain very much in the hunt for a play-off place at the very least and the Royals will be confident that they can go one better when the Blades come to town.

The visitors have been pretty hit and miss in recent weeks and their disappointing form on their travels makes us very wary of backing them to manage anything from this match. Indeed given that Reading impressed in their six-goal weekend thriller, we'll be siding with them to collect the three points and lift themselves further from there drop zone on Tuesday evening.
